Basil, Rosemary and the Pansy sisters are lively, chatty little plants. They think they know some stuff, but when it comes to this animal, they know nothing. One wild assumption leads to another and gets them into big trouble.
Excerpt from the story - Basil, Rosemary and the Pansy sisters lived together in a bright orange flowerpot. The pot sat on a windowsill outside the zoo's cafe. Fesleğen, Biberiye ve Hercai Menekşe kardeşler, parlak portakal rengi bir saksıda birlikte yaşıyorlardı. Saksı, hayvanat bahçesindeki kafede, pencerenin dış kenarında duruyordu. In front of the plants was a black road painted with white stripes. Visitors who came to the zoo walked over the white stripes when they crossed the road. Bitkilerin önünde, beyaz çizgilerle boyalı siyah bir yol vardı. Hayvanat bahçesine gelen ziyaretçiler, yoldan karşıya geçerken beyaz çizgilerin üzerinden yürüyorlardı. The plants were talking about the road crossing when a big animal appeared. It came across the road towards the plants. Büyük bir hayvan ortaya çıktığı sırada, bitkiler yaya geçidinden bahsediyorlardı. Yoldan geçerek bitkilere doğru geldi.
Colin Hann and Pedro Páramo are friends and partners in the LingoLibros adventure. LingoLibros is a young and developing company. Our aim is to produce quality bilingual books with an easy to follow parallel text, at an affordable price. We believe that they will be of particular benefit to parents with bilingual children who hope to develop their child's understanding of their native tongues. Our books are, so far, short stories with amusing illustrations suitable for reading aloud to young children in a single language or in a combination of two languages. Older children can enjoy reading these stories by themselves to learn and practice their second language. Students with a basic or intermediate knowledge of a foreign language will find these books very helpful in developing their vocabulary and understanding of the second language. We hope you benefit from and enjoy reading these bilingual tales.read more
